    Sunday Times

    Daily Telegraph
  • At a time when the Army is facing cutbacks while being expected to fight distant, unpopular wars on a shoestring, David's book could not be more topical

    Sunday Telegraph
  • Filled with swashbuckling derring-do, the reek of blood and gunpowder, combined with shrewd analysis of power, war and psychology

  • Highly readable.... Saul David is particularly good at battle scenes, and the incredibly violent 150-year period leaves him spoilt for choice....His insights are thoughtful and his prose style compelling

    Andrew Roberts, Mail on Sunday
